3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Chmielarnia, Warsaw. Hazy orange colour, almost no head. I have no idea how seabuckthorn taste, but there are some strange fruits in smell, so mybe that’s it. There are also some funky belgian, buiscuit and typical sour notes. Oh my god! How sour is that! It’s perfect, I love it! It’s sour, it’s salty, it’s fruity, there are some sour citrus fruits. Very nice, probably best lambic i have ever tasted.

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle bought from the Mikkeller webshop. Pours very cloudy orange with a rather small frothy offwhite head that leaves some lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour, fruity and funky with sourdough crackers, seabuckthorn, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, moist hay, barnyard, leather, horse blanket and hints of white wine vinegar. Taste is heavy sour, slightly salty, fruity, vegetal and funky with sourdough crackers, heavy seabuckthorn, celery, vegetable soup broth, leather, silage, barnyard, lemon juice and horse blanket. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, slightly mouth-puckering and medium bodied. Finish is sour, slightly salty, fruity, tiny vegetal and funky with sourdough crackers, seabuckthorns, celery, moist hay, lemon zest, leather, barnyard and horse blanket. Smells great but the taste holds tons of unexplainable (most likely the boatloads of seabuckthorns goes overboard) celery that makes this pretty revolting I’m afraid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled@Black Door, Helsinki. Hazy orangeish amber colour, with a small white head. Aroma is sour wood, some slight berries and a bit sweetness to it as well. Flavour is sour and tart wood along with some sweetness as well as some mild sea buckthorn elements, though from a quite ripe side of them (giving an almost infectionous sea buckthorn element to this). Jessica Heidrich’s St. Eriks and Cantillon are so far the ones who have managed to make something really good with this berry.
